In the last couple of months I've been trying to use up some of the foundations in my very large foundation stash. This MUFE foundation is one that I was keen to use up, as I'd paid a lot of money for it and did not wish to throw it away. And boy am I glad I gave it another chance, as now it's become one of my favourites.
So what's different now? My skin! Back when I first bought this my skin was quite dry and no amount of moisturising would make it better. A heavy and creamy foundation like MAC Studio Sculpt (review HERE) looked good on my dry skin, but a thinner foundation like this MUFE HD just did not work. Now that my skin is normal, this foundation looks beautiful on it. It provides medium coverage, and while it doesn't cover every single blemish on my skin, the end result looks very natural. Kind of like my skin, but better. Here is a picture of how it looks on my skin. Click on the picture to enlarge.

I was colour matched to the shade #120. It's a fairly good match for my NC25 skintone, but next time I purchase it I might go up a shade to #123 which has more olive undertones (this one has yellow undertones).
Moral of the story is - what did not work for you once before, might actually start working for you now, so give things a second chance!
Make Up For Ever is sold at Sephora or if you're in Australia you can buy it from PM Studio. (As far as I know PM Studio are the only place that sell them, so if you know of other stockists let me know!)
Are there any products you didn't like at first but grew to love later?
